Food Fight: Public interest groups challenge CSPI position on GE labeling

A fight between public interest groups that has been simmering under the surface for years has busted out into public view.

Michele Simon of Eat, Drink Politics and Andrew Kimbrell of the Center for Food Safety posted an article yesterday titled Why Center for Science in the Public Interest is Wrong Not to Support Genetically Engineered Food Labeling

“The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), often seen as a leader in nutrition policy, stands virtually alone in its continued opposition to labeling GE foods,” Simon and Kimbrell write. “This stance is troubling and confusing given how outspoken CSPI has been for decades on food labeling and consumer information.”
